I got this little goodie in an email this morning. If you have been doing CLOMR-Fs or CLOMRs the cost to your client may have just gone up by a factor of 10 or more and the regulatory time period necessary to do the work may have just increased by several years.
EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 1, 2010 FEMA will institute a new mandatory requirement for Conditional Letters of Map Revision (CLOMR).
All CLOMR-Fs and CLOMRs received on or after October 1, 2010 will be required to show compliance with the Endangered Species Act prior to issuance of the CLOMR-F or CLOMR.
Please see the attached memorandum for more information.
I don't claim to know all the details as I have not been doing this sort of work. If you do do this sort of work, it's time to figure out how this will affect you and your clients.
